Just a quick helpful hint and interesting discovery I found for my Breadmaker.
When making French Bread, I added 4 Tablespoons of butter, instead of the paltry
1 teaspoons called for. I also added a little less water (less about a
Tablespoon) so it wouldn't overrise. The bread came out fantastic! The
inside was much softer/moister and creamy tasting. The crust was also much
improved, not so dry. A major improvement that I plan to try on my other
Just for fun, here's how the ingredients came out. I have DAK so this is for
a pretty big loaf. Other machines may have to cut this down by about a 1/3
for all ingredients.
1 package yeast
2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
4 Tablespoons butter (I cut it up into about 8 pieces to mix better)
1 cup warm water (this was 1 cup and 1 T, don't need so much)
(use French bread selection)
Hope y'all enjoy it!
